I know this is an old thread but I need some suggestions I am slowly but surely building My first pc( not my first pc but this will be the first one I build) the case I am going to buy is the Aurora 570 I want to do water cooling ( total noob to water cooling) because I plan on overclocking and I need to keep it cool because of hours of gaming loads. The specs so far Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L ATX LGA775 P35 1333FSB 1PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 3PCI SATA2 Sound GBLAN Motherboard ,Q660 cpu ,2 gigs Ram,Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive not to sure of the Vid card yet but most likely nvid 8800 gts , ok now would the Thermaltake CL-W0121 Bigwater 760i Driver Bay be a Good choice for water cooling the cpu and a vid card or would it be better to build a custom water cooling system? and if custom what would you suggest?

After I had purchased my case I had worked on the stacker I was looking at and have to say I felt I made a good purchase in regards to the case.

The 570 is huge and has lots of room inside.

If you are planning water cooling and want to do it right the first time with no regrets...go with a custom set up or at the very least a preconfigured kit from either swiftech or danger den Oh and if you plan on cooling both gpu and cpu while oc'n go with at least a dual rad

Cool

I've had both cases and for air cooling I haven't found anything better than the Stacker 830/832's. But for water cooling the Aurora 570 is the hands down better case for this purpose.
